Last year he had a bicep, shoulder, calf, knee, and quad injury.  A true 5 category powerhouse in Injury-only leagues.  

I’d like to congratulate him for making it to August before hitting the IL this year

Ahhh the first Giancarlo IL stint of the season During these crazy times, it’s always good to have something you can count on

He seems to adhere to the Gary Sanchez routine referred to as "never stretch."

I think he sits in an ice cold bath then goes right into full balls-to-the-wall work out.

How does this guy get hurt so much playing BASEBALL! It’s the least physical sport out there LOL. Anyway - expect the worst with him. Don’t be surprised if he’s out all year again 

I've been asking myself this for years now.  The only thing I can think of is muscles and baseball don't go together.

Here we go again. Over and under on games is 100 at best. Realistically it's more like 60 games.

I've been saying the dude is too jacked to be a ball player. He needs flexibility exercises, not to get even more muscles.

Don't the Yankees have any say over what he does?

You should read Bob Feller’s Little Blue Book of Baseball (or it’s black, don’t remember which) if you haven’t. Feller talks about injuries, more for pitchers, but he talks about how players In today’s game are too muscle bound and not limber enough.

Welp.

at least it’s the most mild strain in the strain world...this dude man, what a bummer.  Still holding optimism he figures this shiiii out w/around 4 weeks till it counts..

Over and under on strains for 2020 is 3. He's 1/3 of the way there and we are still in Feb.

That’s easy money. Didn’t he pull/strain muscles five times last year? Lol. That should be the o/u, lol.

I would take the under on 5 cuz he can't strain another one when he's hurt and not doing anything. That's the only reason it'd be under 5.

He’s definitely done that as recently as last season

Sure he can. This dude is as capable of straining and upper body muscle while he’s nursing a lower body strain, as he his hitting 40 HR in a 500 AB season. :D

I think Stanton is cooked. All the injuries he had last year were muscle injuries.. Gets healthy only to get hurt again in the playoffs.. and now he's out with a calf injury. I would just let The Man of Glass fall to whoever wants to draft him. Upside aint worth the risk with his injuries.

Agreed.  Not to mention who doesn’t have a timetable with a “minor calf strain.”  Imagine if he had a major calf strain?  Would the thing need to be amputated?

They have a timetable, they're just not reporting it.

As someone who has sprained everything that can possibly be strained (been wight-lifting/powerlifting for over two decades now) I would probably consider the calf to be the MOST difficult muscle to strain. Calves are ******** tough.  My assumption is that he has been laying around trying to let his other lower body injuries heal, calves quickly became out of shape, then he thought he could just roll into spring training and resume the routine he had a few years ago.

My one significant calf strain that I can recall it took at least a solid month before I was back at 90+%.  It was a week or two before I wasn't limping like crazy as my foot's normal range of motion while walking was horribly painful.

"Yankees OF Giancarlo Stanton has a major calf strain.  Estimated time until he can resume normal baseball activities is 240-260 weeks."
